Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez

Former Liverpool hero John Aldridge has told his old side to swoop in for Alexis Sanchez this January. Sanchez is out of contract in summer and is in no mood to extend his deal at Arsenal. His most likely destination remains Manchester City, where he would reunite with former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.

Arsenal may look to sell him for a cut-price fee this month to avoid losing him for free during the summer. However, Liverpool are in terrific form and despite failing to land the Chilean in 2014, Sanchez may have had a change of heart now.

On the other hand, the Reds are set to concede Philipe Coutinho to Barcelona. The Brazilian playmaker is expected to finally complete his switch to the Nou Camp this month.

As per Daily Star, the Reds reportedly held talks with the La Liga giants yesterday and Coutinho believes he has played his last game for the club. With Coutinho all set for his dream move, Aldridge believes they can soften the blow by making a cheeky £40m bid for Sanchez.

“Liverpool made a real statement of intent when they paid £75m to sign Virgil van Dijk – and now they should put in a sneaky £40m offer to try and get Alexis Sanchez out of Arsenal,” Aldridge said, via the Irish Independent.

“The absence of Philippe Coutinho from the Liverpool team yesterday fuelled rumours that he may be on his way to Barcelona sooner than we expected, but that would not be so much of a concern if they could nick a player like Sanchez.

“I’m a big fan of the Chilean forward who turned down a move to Liverpool in favour of joining Arsenal in the summer of 2014, amid suggestions he did not want to live in the north of England.

“Well, if he is keen to join Manchester City now, that stance has clearly changed and maybe he would be tempted by a move to a Liverpool side that he would fit into so easily.”

He added:

“Sanchez is out of contract at Arsenal next summer and while Manchester City appear to be favourites to sign him, Liverpool should try their chances of getting him in this month’s transfer window.

“If Liverpool could grab Sanchez now, it would be a major coup and then Liverpool fans would not be too concerned if Coutinho left for Barcelona.”

We are still not clear whether Coutinho’s proposed move to Barcelona will happen in January or in the summer, but I am very sure he is keen on a move to Spain to play for the Catalan giants.

However, if we could replace him with Sanchez, I would be more than happy as the Chilean is currently one of the top forwards in Europe.

Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic hasn’t ruled out playing in the Premier League someday. The American is one of the best youngsters in the Bundesliga and was brought to Borussia Dortmund by Jurgen Klopp.

The Express reports that Liverpool have been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

Pulisic was quoted by the Express as saying:

“England, the Premier League, is a league where lots of kids dream of playing.

“So there is no reason why maybe one day I won’t play here.”

The Express adds that Klopp bid £11million for the American in 2016 but Dortmund rejected that offer. Pulisic has helped the club to the top of the Bundesliga this season and has two goals and two assists.

The report adds that Manchester United are also interested in the 20-year-old, and could rival any bid made by the Anfield giants.

The American added that he is enjoying his season with the Germans and knows that tabloid tales are part of the game.

Pulisic would be a wonderful addition to the team, and the youngster can play in a number of positions in the attacking third.

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah was recently in the news after being caught wearing a Playboy shirt. While many commented on his style, the Egyptian posted yet another image before the international break.

Salah is set to play for Egypt in an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tunisia on Friday, and the pressure would be on the Liverpool man to get the three points for the Pharaohs.

The Liverpool attacker shared an image suggesting he was ready to play for the national side.

However, some of his Twitter followers weren’t happy with the picture he selected and believed the 26-year-old was unhappy playing for the Pharaohs.

Salah has been exceptional for club and country in recent years with Egypt making it to the World Cup in the summer.

The Reds reached the Champions League final but Salah had to be subbed after 30 minutes due to an injury.

The 26-year-old has 11 goals for club and country this season and will be important for both sides throughout the campaign.

However, the fans weren’t letting go of the picture easily, and here are some of their reactions from Twitter.

Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has claimed that the Frenchman is not looking to leave Barcelona.

Calciomercato reports that the Barcelona star was linked with a move to Liverpool, however, Sissoko was speaking to RMC Sport about the future of the 21-year-old.

Mundo Deportivo (h/t Calciomercato) quoted Sissoko as saying:

“The club is happy with Ousmane.

“Dembele doesn’t care about criticisms. Some of them are unfair. He is 20, he plays for Barcelona and he had a great start to the season.”

The agent further claimed that the player has to do better and the Frenchman was sick for a while which led to a few controversies.

Sissoko added that the national team manager and Barcelona’s Eric Abidal were happy with the attacker.

“Ousmane keeps working for a big club, the manager likes him and the same goes for Deschamps. I know Abidal is also very happy with how he is training and working for his club.”

Dembele seems to be doing better when compared to the same time frame last season. The Frenchman has scored four goals from 11 La Liga games and has one from two Champions League ties.

The former Borussia Dortmund player would be an amazing signing for the Reds, but we would have to pay a huge amount to sign him from Barcelona.
